Sabres' high expectations unravel with last-place finish

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) The Sabres were so confident they had moved forward corner from their miserable past, the team's marketing department included owner Terry Pegula's hopeful comments in a televised feature on how Buffalo landed Taylor Hall in free agency in October.

"We sign this guy," Pegula was overheard saying during a closed-door meeting with general manager Kevyn Adams, "we're not only trying to make the playoffs, we're trying to win the Cup."

Instead, the Sabres tied the NHL record by missing the playoffs for the 10th straight season.
